Australia’s worst kept secret is now official: Matty J will continue his search for love as Australia’s Bachelor in 2017.
The network Ten reality show, which is expected to return in late June/ early July has confirmed the news – and you bet we’re excited to see that spunky face back on our TV sets. I mean, look at that badass…
The heartthrob, who was unsuccessful at winning over Georgia Love’s – love – and had his heart shattered into a thousand pieces for the sake of our enjoyment, confirmed the news on Instagram this morning.
In the post he said,
I can finally announce that yes, I will be the next Bachelor. I never could have imagined I’d be given this opportunity. I’m beyond excited to start this incredible adventure and to find the special girl I’ve been waiting for. 🌹
His return to the show is somewhat surprising given that last season’s drama focused on his adamant desire to never leave Sydney and his cut-throat sister’s concerned about him having his heart broken in front of the nation. Then again, Insta-fame and free tickets to the bird-cage at Flemington do come at a cost. So… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ you do you m8.
In a statement, Matty J spilt some classic Bachelor romantic garbage about ‘finding the one,’ settling down and yadda yadda yadda. An excerpt reads:
“I’m so excited about the prospect of settling down.”
“Timing is such a crucial factor when it comes to making this commitment and I know wholeheartedly, that there’s nothing I want more.”
More importantly, let us just reflect on all the great man has to offer. Here’s a 13 babin’ pics of Matty J, officially Australia’s next Bachelor.
